A staple around the Lake James area; always bustling and for a good reason. The food is consistently great, the service warm and expeditious. Not a bargain of a meal, but worth the money as it truly is delicious. Does not disappoint.

I have been going to Caruso's since I was a little kid. We had a tradition of going there every Friday for pizza, even though we lived 30 minutes away. They always had the Franke booth waiting when we got there! The quality of the food has not changed one bit! It is every bit as good as what it... More

Always great food no matter what you order. I have never had anything that wasn't good, fresh, and hot. The bread sticks are amazing. Authentic Italian food and family owned and operated.

The food is ok but a bit pricey for merely ok. The sausage and Joe's rolls are good. The lasagne is average. The breadsticks are also ok. Service is usually acceptable.

Although this restaurant is slightly off the 'beaten path', it is not difficult to find. Locals here (I am one)know and frequent Caruso's for their excellent cuisine, especially Italian dishes. Their pizza is an undiscovered secret, but matches their main courses in quality. Hint: in the summer, call for reservations to avoid long lines of tourists.

We have been patrons quite a few times. We have come away pleased with the pasta, salads and torpedo dishes. The service is good. Be a bit warry of the lasagnia, as ours came out cold. They took it back and microwaved it some more, and it was then luke warm...but clearly not prepared fresh. Go with Pasta, Pizza or... More

Both the food & service were excellent. Had calamari as an app. Larger squid cut into strips instead of rounds. It was delicious! My wife had a seafood dish and I had veal. Spectacular! A must go if you're in the area!

Stopped here on our way home from Michigan. I used to eat here as a child while on vacation in Angola. I remembered the breadsticks being some of the best ever. I made sure to order them and was not disappointed, they are still amazing. The fettuccini Alfredo was also great. Will definitely be back when we are in the... More

We stopped here on recommendation of a friend on our way north to Michigan from Indiana. We were greeted by the hostess and seated right away. We sat in a booth in a room that had no one else in it at the time (mid afternoon) and it was a bit chilly in there. Our server brought us water as... More

My wife and I had a really good dinner here. A party of 12 were having a Birthday celebration and some noise but able to have table conversation at a normal level. My wife had spaghetti, but the Veal Marsala was awesome
